A blockbuster in its first week, ABC’s Roseanne revival fell off significantly in its second time around the block.

Leading off at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Roseanne drew 292,006 D-FW viewers and 118,583 in the advertiser-coveted 18-to-49-year-olds demographic. The previous Tuesday’s opening pair of episodes pulled in 441,570 total viewers and 196,598 in the 18-to-49 age range.

The drop of nearly 150,000 total viewers put Roseanne behind CBS’ competing NCIS, which ranked first from 7 to 7:30 p.m. with 327,618 and also won the full hour with an average of 334,739.

Roseanne still impressively drew the night’s biggest haul of 18-to-49-year-olds, though, more than doubling up on the 56,171 for NBC’s The Voice and 49,930 for NCIS.

ABC’s second episode of Splitting Up Together, which aired at 8:30 p.m., improved on its lead-in from black-ish by finishing second in its time slot in total viewers (135,320) and first with 18-to-49ers (62,412).

CBS’ Bull and NCIS: New Orleans were the 8 to 10 p.m. winners in total viewers while ABC’s new For the People won the 9 p.m. hour among 18-to-49-year-olds.

Here are Tuesday’s local news derby results.

CBS11 won in total viewers at 10 p.m., but NBC5 was tops with 25-to-54-year-olds (main advertiser target audience for news programming).

Fox4 cruised to another pair of runaway wins at 6 a.m. and also had the most 25-to-54-year-olds at 5 and 6 p.m.

Fox4 and NBC5 tied for the most total viewers at 5 p.m.; TEGNA8 and Fox4 shared first place in that measurement at 6 p.m.
